's new book, "the endgame: the inside story of the struggle for iraq, from george w. bush to barack obama." mr. gordon, it's november 2012 right now. how many americans are in iraq as we speak? >> there's no american troops were many military functions are there's 200 odd person out who succumbed to the embassy and their primary duty is to sell american military equipment to the iraqi government, f-16s and the like as an act tachÉ function. then there's a fairly sizable american embassy, which is contracted by the state department, reduced by 25%. but what you don't have the mesa consulate and kurdistan and a consulate outside of boston in southern iraq, that the united states has really lost a lot of situational awareness of what is happening in iraq because you don't have anything like the kind of footprint that it used to have. iraq is still a strategically vital country. it's one of the largest oil reserves. it's our producing a random terms of oil. they strategically located between persia and the arab countries. it's a strategically important place. turkey, iran, or countries and u

, and there should be better planning for this sort of thing. they won't expect as many people as this one as obama's first inauguration, but still there should be pwetder planning. >> the concern is you are going to clog up the main bus lines in getting people back and forth and that's important, and it's disruption, so how do you deal with that. >> this is a holiday, remember? you are not going to have as many cars on the streets, and it's just dumb. it's really dumb. people will be coming to the inauguration. you are right, they may not know where they are going to go. walking three miles. some folks come ready to go not only to the inauguration but they also go to the ball. >> that's right. >> and it's unfair and no way to treat visitors to a very important event. >> we are supposed to be the city of tourists. >> the security tightened up, believe it or not. those of us that will be covering it out in the stands we cannot get into the capital without having more security, and that shows you hpowehow wor they are about things. >>> and d.c.'s godfather, of course, left us, and chuck brown died th

"i will also go to the federal budget, line by line, eliminating programs that no longer work. because we cannot meet 21st century challenges with 20 a century bureaucracy. >> how would you rate the completion record on that? caller: i am not a real political person. i have not seen anything being done. there is just so much waste in the government, and they are asking people to, responsibly, fiscally, on their own, pay for this mess? >> we will take a look at your twitter messages in a moment. what is ahead for the fiscal cliff? some scary fiscal forces coming together -- >> a couple of quick look at twitter messages. >> another twitter message from barbara lee, texas. >> some levity to the situation from susan, who says -- >> you can see all the latest twitter messages on c-span. -- c-span.org. lisa, what is the latest between the majority leader and mitch mcconnell? >> there is a flurry of activity as congr

obama would have been roundly defeated by an establishment candidate like mitt romney. the white establishment is now the minority. and the voters, many of them, feel that this economic system is stacked against them and they want stuff. >> it's sort of delusional, first of all. i mean, because it's sort of a claim made and then the sort of the information ix extracted from that claim. yes, i agree that the majority, the plurality of voters in this country think the economic system is stacked against them. but i don't think that they therefore turn around and say, "we want stuff." i think what they say is, "and the republican party is part of the reason the economic system's stacked against us." but, you know, the larger claim, the larger sort of statement is certainly there is this panicked, wounded, astonished, nostalgic longing for an america, a white, conservative america, that in many ways never was. never, never really was. and so it's sort of sad to see, you know, someone like o'reilly. you know, that moment where he can't confront what's really happened. and he tries to e
